Understanding Macro Magnification Ratio 1:1 and How It’s Calculated

Anyone interested in macro photography has seen – at least once,
that in order to achieve true macro, your subject must have a real life
reproduction size of at least 1:1 magnification ratio.

But what does that actually mean and how do you figure out
the actual magnification of your photo ?

Magnification is one of the main factors that determine
whether you captured a CloseUp, Macro or Micro shot.

The concept of magnification in photography can be confusing,
so I created a video in which I am explaining it in a simple way.
